12 Mar 2017 : Footballing rivals raise 725 for Gracie's Goal in support of Brain Tumour Research

A fundraising initiative involving followers of neighbouring fans-owned non-league football clubs, 1874 Northwich and Runcorn Linnets has raised a worthy 725.

The sum was generated by the Cheshire rivals in support of five-year-old Gracie McCall, who is terminally ill with secondary cancers, and Brain Tumour Research.

The campaign was launched by 1874 goalkeeper Greg Hall, a teaching assistant at the Gracie's school in Withington, Manchester.

The proceeds came from the sale at Saturday's derby game of replicas of the bandanas Greg has been wearing for recent matches, paying 10 into the fund on each occasion, plus a half-time collection and various donations, including contributions from two other Hallmark Security League clubs, Maine Road and Padiham.

The support provided by both sets of fans was superb and and a cheque for 725 will be presented by 1874 to Greg so that he can in turn pass it on to Gracie's family.

1874 Northwich FC thanked fans attending the game for contributing to the appeal, Runcorn Linnets FC and everyone whose generous donations have resulted in raising such a tremendous amount.

Further donations can be made through www.justgiving.com/fundraising/GraciesGoal. Payments from Linnets fans can be marked "Runcorn Linnets supporting Gracie's Goal."
